“Founded by Spanish guitarist Javi Jiménez, the group is honing a singular body of music that combines the instrumentation and signature rhythms of modern jazz, flamenco and (the jazz manouche tradition), the enduringly popular propulsive string-band style created in 1930s Paris by Sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt and French violinist Stephan Grappelli.” - Berkeleyside

The San Francisco-based acoustic ensemble performs a repertoire of original compositions with an emotionally charged sound that is difficult to classify yet instantly recognizable.

The group’s international roots shine brightly in their music with members from Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California and is deeply influenced by a wide range of musical traditions. Barrio Manouche has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and its passion for musical improvisations. With latest collaborations including French Flamenco dancer Fanny Ara, African sacred dance Brazilian dancer Emaye Ama Mizani, as well as Colombian singer Iván Rondón, Barrio Manouche plays what is perhaps the truest definition of World Music.

Barrio Manouche is taking their audience on a magical journey, with a unique fusion of cultures and musical backgrounds, an auditory and visual feast like no other.
